A new tote, the Satin Rose. Kinda simple. A rose print jacquard fabric, the palest roses, with a background more like bone. I love stripes especially when they are the reverse of fabric, so I only half lined the inside of the bag to not cover them. The lining is a heavy linen, in grey or sand. So, half lined with a big inner pocket. And then a detachable pocket for your cell, it has this sort of sliding opening. In the photos here it’s on the outside but you just toss it inside. And yes, it does still have the embroidered “secret swan”. Both pockets use big vintage mother of pearl buttons, I only have a few of these. I made wide bias tape out of the linen too, the inner hems are finished with them which helps to hold the shape even more. And the inside of the handles are also lined with linen. It’s a quietly special bag, on the outside it’s just a bag, though soft & gorgeous, with nice features hidden inside. If you really wanted to you could carry it inside out. P.S. This bag feels great.
There won’t be many of these available, there’s a really limited amount of the outer fabric and very few of these buttons. Just another work of love and foolishness from me. Hope you like.
As for the postal strike and shop re-opening, I will blog, tweet, facebook and everything else as soon as we are open. And again, thank you very much for your patience.
